Thursday, November 26, 2009 9:31 PM
I am looking for 2 people that race third gen cav's or sunfire's, either road racing, or circle track for a possible product development sponsorship.You must sign a privacy clause until the test time is up then you will be allowed to keep all the parts you tested or they will be replaced for new ones, with other possible benefits. please im me if you are interested. thanks guys

And are you reliable if you experimental pieces break and total the car, or worse kill the driver?

Do you race in a sanctioned racing series? My parts are on my car and a friends and flex less than the factory peaces. I am waiting for stress testing to come back on a test peace before they hit any race tracks....and I would hope that you would have the proper safety equipment to not "die" in a racing class, you may want to rethink the class that you are in if they don't have your safety in mind. Let me know if you race in a sanctioned class( including the sanctioning body and class) Thanks for your response.......

P.S. I am trying to get the gap filled for aftermarket suspension parts for the J-body parts, I own a welding/ Fab shop, and am ASE master certified. and want to make sure the parts are fully tested before they ever are sold for the street. if they can work in a race car, they will stand up to every day life on the street. Thanks again

you mis-spelled piece twice. that doesnt look good for you.
i looked at your profile and it looks like you are from texas. my advice to you is go to your local tracks and look there. while JBO does have some j-body racers, not many post.

Because that's totally what you should judge his work off of, the spelling of the word piece.

The fact is this is an internet forum. You WILL be judged by your spelling and grammar It is how you make your first impression on the internet.

"ther b so many mistaks on hear it niot B funny Y4u be disin hm"

Piece and peace, accept and except, hear and here, their and there and they're, to and too and two, etc...these are just a few of the words I've seen misused on here. Most everyone has done it, myself included.

Where do you think most of our specialty manufacturers got their start. Almost all of them started with one or two pieces and worked up from there. The products usually end up being better than what a larger manufacture can produce. Yes, there have been the not so reputable independents, but only time can tell if he is honest or if he truly has the time/capability/equipment to manufacture products for the Js.

Then again, he still needs to get past all the flamers, who'll cut you down before ever knowing the person or giving them the chance.

lol, thanks for the spell check, your right it does not look good to miss spell words..... I had a very hard time with it in school..... but I helped teach the welding/ fabrication class my senior year..... who would you rather make your chassis parts a spelling Bee whizz or some one that has been welding since he was11years old....... and in my defense..lol.. I did spell check....



Thanks for the replies guys, I am located in MN.... not to much for racing going on this time of the year. I have looked into the local circle track, however I don't think they can run aftermarket part on the "hornet" class.




I expect a fair amount off flack, being new, and not having a "band name" but MadJack is right there is two ways to get into this industry, you either work for someone else and ride their coat tails to the top..... or you can take the hard road (and probably fail) but if you don't you just might end up like Jack Roush, Gail Banks, or Vic Edelbrock...... I have worked for a few race shops and speed shops and I couldn't work for people who did not have Quality as the #1 priority..... If you make the best product and stand behind it, you have an edge up on many other shops out there.

thanks again guys

P.S. I think that the J-body group Has not had the recognition that it deserves, there are many of you guys that have very nice, fast cars..... I just want to do my part to help change that....... I mean have you seen the parts available for the Neon's.... what the heck...lol

In a nutshell. I am building a 1997 Z24. I run at Berlin Raceway in Marne Michigan. This will be the 3rd year for the front wheel drive 4 cylinder class at this historic race track. I ran a 1992 cavalier the first 2 years where we were a top 10 car both years. Berlin is a 7/16 mile track. If this works for you to test your parts let me know.
